Description

If you’ve ever been to Key West, Florida, then you know that it’s the home of Key Lime Pie. The origin of the key lime pie is said to date back to the Florida sponge fishermen. The sponge fishermen spent many days and nights at sea and were unable to refrigerate their food. Common ingredients on their boats were condensed milk, limes and eggs. Living on a boat, it is no surprise that the fishermen did not have access to ovens. Accordingly, the original key lime pie recipe does not call for the pie to be baked! Try adding milk and a touch of sugar or sweetener to this brew for an even richer experience!

Ceylon, South India and China black teas, candied pineapple bits (pineapple, sugar), lemon peels, flavor, yoghurt bits, marigold petals.
